Club Brugge of Belgium’s Nigerian-born attacker, Arnaud Danjuma says he is not happy, despite scoring a wonder goal in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, as his side lost 3-1 against Atletico Madrid.
Although the Dutch youth international, who was born in Lagos but grew up in Holland, hit major headlines with his well taken goal in midweek, it only turned out to be a mere consolation, and the in-form lad says his joy was limited.
Footballlive.ng can report that several accolades are trailing Danjuma’s performance on the night, but the youngster says he would have loved to see his side carried the day as well, then relish the beauty of his goal.
Nonetheles, more rave reviews are trailing his super strike against Atletico, with the latest coming from Belgium ex-international, Marc Degryse, who said the 29th minute was out of this world.
Degryse said: “Danjuma has already made a name for himself in the Belgium, but with his equaliser in the first half, he also shows his class in Europe. He continues to do his thing at the highest level, regardless of the opponent.
“I think this is his best and best goal he has already made for Club Brugge, which was perfect and shows that he is very strong in his head.
“He had a hard time in the first half hour, but he kept his self-confidence to shoot from that distance.
“It’s a goal that will go around the world, because scoring against such a goalkeeper with such a kick.”
However, Danjuma, who is still undecided over whether to commit his international future to Holland or Nigeria, said he was not totally happy, since his team lost 3-1.
Danuma disclosed: “I am happy with my goal, but when in the end you lose 3-1 it is just something for the statistics which does not really help you further.”
